Regular Consumption of Whole Fruits May Lower the Risk of Diabetes

Recent research, published in the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism, suggests that regularly eating moderate to high amounts of whole fruits, not fruit juices, is associated with a lower risk of type 2 diabetes, as well as better levels of glucose tolerance and insulin sensitivity.Regular Consumption of Whole Fruits May Lower the Risk of Diabetes

For the study, researchers used data from the Australian Diabetes, Obesity, and Lifestyle Study which included 11,247 people in 1999-2000 with additional follow-up surveys in 2004-2005 and 2011-2012. The researchers checked how much fruit people ate, which particular fruits they ate, and how much fruit juice they drank.

The corresponding author Dr. Nicola Bondonno of Edith Cowan University’s Institute for Nutrition Research in Perth, Australia, comments on the results of the study: “We found [that] people who consumed around 2 servings of fruit per day had a 36% lower risk of developing type 2 diabetes over the next 5 years than those who consumed less than half a serving of fruit per day.”
